Rustic Traditional West African Gankogui Double Bell. ( Note - Bell is Missing Ball )
Gankogui is a rustic, traditional double bell from the West African region, mainly Ghana and Togo. The name originates from the local phrases of “ga” meaning metal and “ko” meaning phonetic syllable. They have a stacked configuration and far brighter, refreshing and deep tones as compared to Nigerian agogo bells. It originated in the West African tribe of Ewes who used different types of bells and drums as musical instruments for ceremonies (both happy and tragic) and to alert the whole village.
